Will Moyes be our Alex Ferguson?
Stability in todays game is a far cry from when Alex Ferguson became Man Utd manager. Today success is driven by money as we all know, and rarely do we see progress from within the ranks and the academy.
When Fergie joined Man Utd it took around 3 seasons to really get them underway but look at the success that he brought to the club. Yes money was there but it was well spent and he stamped an authority and ethos into the club.

With the way West Ham look today, that lack of drive, poor injury records and a general lethargy and consistency is missing. This I feel is down to poor transfer judgement and mentality in the club, where the boss is Sullivan who clearly has failed over the G&S tenure.

There is something there though with Moyes, it hasn't really flourished and heavy losses have shown that he doesn't have what he needs for success. Some of this is a learning curve for him, but some of it is the resources at hand.

But, there is a mentality there that can work given the right support. The game against Southampton was a different class than what we have seen. Our season has been plagued by poor player attitude and lack of fitness, but with a good transfer window and backing maybe Moyes can bring success. Sadly I feel our ownership will get carried away by any potential success and ruin it, as they have done before.

If we survive this season, next season should be about Moyes and what he can develop. Bringing in the younger talent into our game has brought some interesting successes (Rice), something that was lacking under Allardyce and Bilic to a degree.

All in all, I like the Moyes managerial style, tactically and the consistency needed is not there yet, but maybe Moyes can do what Fergie did and gradually develop a winning formula to West Ham.
Let's see.

We just need to beat Nottingham Forest in the Cup, and then everything will come together.

I would have thought he should have known better before April this year. If he had written that in April 2012 then maybe, but anyone that has been watching football for any amount of time would know that this was a crazy post.

The author of the original post must feel pretty embarrassed about it now.
Who in their right mind would now think such a thing.

I think this one belongs on the Less Dawson thread.

I can just imagine him delivering this thread title with his deadpan face...

Alex Ferguson had only ever been a success where he'd managed before Man Utd, Moyesie did quite well at Everton, CL qualification and a near relegation and has since failed in every job he's had since then.

Two compare the two is an insult to Ferguson.

I don't dislike Moyes, and I think he speaks interestingly when in front of the media.

However, the way he has SQUANDERED the goal scoring talent at his disposal that is Javier Hernandez is fucking outrageous!

For that reason alone, he should not be retained.

Ferguson had managed to break the old firm's monopoly in Scotland and win a European trophy before he came south.
Moyesie trod water with Everton and on the rare occasions he had a chance of winning something his lack of courage and adventure ment he surrendered before he even started.
If we go down he will be off, if not get shot

It's currently a toss up between Moyes being Roeder 2.0 or Grant 2.0, with a measure of BFS's (un)attractive football thrown in for good measure

Is this a fucking wind up.

Have you actually read anything about or watched West Ham since this idiot took charge?

Hello Sir Alex,how's your retirement going you drunken old fool?

I just checked my post at 3:25 on April 4, and I was exactly right.
I didn't think Moyes would lose the plot to such an extent though.

A manager as good as Alex Ferguson, and a squad better than Liverpool's and Arsenal's?

We're gonna win the league next season, aren't we?
